about nelson mandela directed by clint eastwood and matt damon is also in it so it's got a great pedigree. >> i wanted to like it more than i did. it's a film that's so well -intended and well-made, the production is fantastic. but i just found it a little dull. it's about how when mandela first came into office he focused to be national rug by team thinking it might inspire the country because at that point only the white citizens were fans of the team but mandela had a vision that if the team could be great the whole country could come together. he managed to inspire the team to greatness but there's a few problems. one is the mandela character seems almost saint-like that he's not so interesting a character and matt damon is the captain of the rug by team,
he's a solid citizen and we need spice and character but do you know the rules of rug by? i don't know them so i was lost. do you want to be cheevering during the sports scene? you're, like, did they just score? so as a piece of history i think it's interesting. as an example of the leadership of nelson mandela, i think it's compelling. but as entertaining, 2 1/2 stars is all i can give. >> so let's move on to the princess and the frog. >> first of all, news flash. this is old-fashioned animation, so you don't need your 3-d glasses, no cgi. it's what we grew up with. the kids are, like, what's that? that's how it used to look, kids. disney is going back to their roots with that.
and as you can see with what's great about the film is the hairoen is an african-american, the first time disney has done this. their princess character be an african-american. that's great and the film takes place in new orleans. she aspires to own her own restaurant. >> and then a print comes to town and a voodoo drsm -- she kisses the frog and instead of the frog turning into a prince she turns into the frog and the two frogs go on an adventure in the bye yew. bayou. that kind of cajun music. it's a lot of fun. you'll be singing along. your kids will love it and you'll love it. is it at the level of the best of the disney animated films? no. it's a knock below. didn't have that incredible inspiration but three stars
and i am recommending it. >> does it play to both the adults and the children? >> yes. i think this one plays a little more to the children, old-fashioned straight forward animation but i think the adults will enjoy the music and how much fun the kids are having. >> to read all reviews at baltimore magazine.net. coming up, how to make your poinsettias last throughout your, keep the streak alive. that story straight ahead.
>> obviously the ravens have not played their best football of late, but their schedule the rest of the way. favorable. baltimore has not lost to a team with a sub-.500 record in a while. and calvin johnson will make you look silly. 6'5" wide receiver may have more of a physical gift than any pass catcher in the nfl. when asked about the lyons quarterback, to judge him a little bit and give advice, he offered two words. calvin johnson. >> anytime you have that type of presence, it makes you a better football player. their record shows one thing, but this is a very capable team, you go back and watch film. >> heisman trophy presentation tonight, colt mccoy going for
the heisman trophy. well, it will be a good night. in baltimore on friday, mccoy, the throurning quarterback awarded with the johnny yoo knights award and joints peyton green and carson palm -- peyton manning and carson palmer. >> it means so much. arguably the greatest ever. he established so much. and it kind of sets the standard for quarterbacks to follow, even a guy like me with so many years behind can turn on espn classic and watch him. it's very special. >> colt mccoy linked with the greatest colt ever, johnny yoo knights. pretty darn cool. >> army-navy. and our correspondent working live, join him online at
www.wbaltv.com. i'm pete gilbert. see you back here tonight at 6:00. >> what do you think weaver talking about? hmm. poinsettias. joining us from bell nursery, nice to see you. >> nice to see you. >> this room has never looked so beautiful. >> a little bit of collar goes a long way. >> this is national poinsettia day. >> they were brought to america from mexico and obviously it's become the equipped century shall christmas flower. everybody has them at their or poinsettia. your call. >> i don't know. but they are fabulous. >> you want to try to keep it away from heaters and water it once a week. make sure it's not sitting in
water. drain the water out of them. other than that, water once a week. >> what about taking the dead flowers off? >> if you see a branch or leaf or flower, you don't want it showing, yank it off. >> and you were saying in terms of the economy, a lot of the tobacco farmers who needed to make a transition. they became poinsettia farmers here oral but they turned out for this time of year they are transitioning into growing pansies for us for the spranged most of these were glone greenhouses in delaware. >> and you have or kids that can be used as a holiday flower. i said i love or kids but they seem so difficult. you said -- >> they are quite easy and the ones we're selling are called
